little girls in the course, buffet @ 周庄

there's only 1 girl in the class of 20, so things are pretty dull. When we discuss practice questions, most of the time guys pick up the talk and don't wanna budge. If there are more girls, the entire discussion will be marvelously different!

the other ladies were concentrated into another class (Class B) - not very impressive if the name list was manipulated, especially on the one who did it. Spoke volumes of the intentions... i'll stop here. No personal attacks!

class ended earlier today. So zw had a recommendation for high tea buffet and we went. From 2.45 to 5.00pm we tucked in generously to the dishes, from dim sum to hongkong styled spinach, fried rice, wanton soup, etc. WE recommend it to anyone who has the time.

restaurant name: Zhou's Kitchen 周庄 (part of Tung Lok Group), 1st branch @ Anchorpoint Oct 07

location: Far East Square, Amoy Street (near Raffles MRT)

tele: 68771123

food: chinese cuisine, particularly cantonese

hi-tea buffet: 2.45 to 5.00pm, ~$21 after tea, pickles, towel and taxes - more info here

i liked these dishes:
- 水果虾沙律 Salad Prawns with Mixed Fruits
- 青瓜拌皮蛋 Century Eggs with Young Cucumber Cubes
- 红烧菠菜豆腐 Braised Spinach Beancurd with Vegetables
- 鱼子烧卖 Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings (yummy!)
- 腊味煎萝卜糕 Pan-fried Carrot Cake
- 扁食 (兴化云吞汤) Pansit (“Xing Hua” Wanton Soup )
- 极品酱虾米煎肠粉 Pan-fried Dried Shrimp Rice Flour Roll with X.O. Sauce

the last item is special - by right you'd expect it to look like the normal chee cheong fun, especially when i thought HK's version is also normal but has better shrimps and soy sauce. But...

Ladies and gentlemen, Chee Cheong Fun

looked like horfun, tasted like horfun. But miles ahead - salty but i like!

finished the session with the spinach beancurd and wanton soup. Heavenly...

any other cliques of mine interested? I think the search for makan for Father's Day can stop already - this is it!
